Terroir

Cool morning fog sweeps from the Pacifi c Ocean over the Russian River Valley nearly every day. This unique climate produces diurnal swings ranging from 35 degrees to 40 degrees Farenheit, allowing the delicate Chardonnay grapes to ripen longer on the vine. As a result, Russian River Valley Chardonnay typically sees an increase in fl avor and complexity.

Vintage

The 2013 vintage is full of deep and rich character. Although yields were lower than the generous 2012 crop, the harvest shares the same balanced fl avor notes. The Russian River Valley had a long ripening season, which helped develop complex fl avors within the fruit. Just a few days saw extremely hot temperatures and the season was marked by less rain than usual, allowing our winemaking team to select maturely fl avored grapes for the 2013 vintage.

Winemaking

The Chardonnay grapes for this wine were hand-picked and whole-cluster pressed to retain optimum fl avor and integrity of the fruit. In addition to growing these grapes on our Estate, we acquired fruit from Hopkins, Eagan, Nakai, Wycoff, Norris and Dutton Vineyard - all which reside in the Russian River Valley. Clones: 04,14, Robert Young (17), 95,76, and Rued.
